Overview
Sail across the Venetian Lagoon on this romantic, 2-hour sunset cruise. Get a new perspective on the towering cathedrals and historic palazzos that line the isles of Venice from aboard a traditional Venetian boat. Pop open a half bottle of Prosecco and soak up the glorious sights of St Mark’s Basin and Venice Lido bathed in the golden light of sunset. Tour numbers are limited to 11 people to ensure an intimate, personalized experience.
What to Expect
Choose from one of two afternoon departure times, and then meet your skipper-guide at central Venice’s Ospedele vaporetto (water bus) station. Your cruising vessel will be either a sampierotta fishing boat for smaller groups or a two-masted trawler known as a bragozzo for groups of 5 to 11 people. Both are traditional, handcrafted Venetian boats. Climb aboard and watch the iconic architecture of Venice recede as you make your way out into the Venetian Lagoon.

Admire a new perspective of St Mark’s Basilica and its neighboring bell tower as you cross St Mark’s Basin, and see the 16th-century fortress of Sant’Andrea. Soak in the sights of Venice Lido, San Clemente Le Grazie and more as your guide points out highlights of the passing scenery. At a particularly beautiful spot between the islands of Giudecca and San Giorgio Maggiore, your skipper will stop the boat so the group can enjoy bobbing up and down on the lagoon’s calm waters and toast the idyllic scene with complimentary Prosecco (soft drinks also available). 

As the sun descends towards the horizon, see the majestic beauty of the Venetian islands bathed in a rosy glow. Continue learning about the history of this magical place as your guide steers the boat back toward central Venice, where city lights will soon be turning on. Say farewell to your guide and fellow passengers back at the original departure point at the end of your 2-hour cruise.

Please note: from December to February, there is a maximum of 4 passenger per booking

Joined the boat as booked to be greeted by the very congenial skipper Tommaso. There were just the 4 of us on board as others didn't show up but meant more space so no problem there. Tommaso was a very humorous and welcoming gentleman and...More

Great tour

We didn't get to go at sunset because of the weather but it was still great touring around the area by boat. Our guide was quiet informative and very nice. We had a lovely afternoon.

The passengers will be just your party. The route will depend on the weather and wind direction. No grand canal. Wonderful views as the sun starts to go down. We went to the northern lagoon, so Burano, Mazzorbo and saw... More
